About Ian Sanderson
Some of you know Ian as the owner and senior instructor of Boulder Quest Center in North Boulder… AND he has many more strings to his bow ….
A member of the Mohawk Nation, Turtle clan, Ian hails from the Six Nations of the Grand River reservation in Ontario, Canada. He has been involved in Outdoor and Experiential Education for over 20 years, working for or with various organizations including the Canadian Outward Bound Wilderness School, the Santa Fe Mountain Center's Native American Emergence Program, Adjunct Faculty at Naropa University, the Environmental Center at CU Boulder, and most recently with the United States Forest Service Office of Tribal Relations.
Ian is devoted to providing facilitation, education, and training through custom programs that inspire reconnection to self, community, and the rest of the natural world by exploring convergences of the philosophies found in Indigenous and Eastern traditions as a means to realize empowered personal development and socio-ecological change. When he's able to take a moment, he can be found doing the following: honing his skills in the woods, building something, cooking something, or at the Boulder Quest Center, a martial arts dojo he owns and where he teaches and trains in the art of To Shin Do ninjutsu. He has an amazing wife, with whom he shares a home with 4 other people, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 9 chickens, 50 tilapia, and approximately 50,000 bees.
We will be meeting at a location in Boulder and carpool to the mountain site for the training. we will be following up via email with the exact meeting location for registrants.
